Mobile internet for everyone and everything

Wholesaler Otto Fischer connects smart devices

Otto Fischer AG, a wholesale company in the field of electrical engineering based in Zurich West, now offers its own connectivity solution in cooperation with Digital Republic AG.

Access to the mobile Internet via the 3G, 4G or 5G network has become increasingly important in recent years. Installers use tablets and laptops on the road and customers are increasingly using devices networked via the Internet, e.g. in the field of smart home or remote maintenance, monitoring and servicing.

The trend is summarised under the term “Internet of Things” (IoT) and brings many new opportunities to the electrical installation sector. Devices such as alarm systems, heating control systems, electricity meters, solar systems, IP cameras, GPS trackers, remote maintenance or eMobility systems communicate via the Internet and offer users intelligent functions. Many of these devices require an Internet-enabled SIM card for this purpose.

For end customers and installers, the purchase and operation of such SIM cards usually involves a lot of effort, waiting time, obligations and high costs. For example, conventional prepaid SIM cards in devices without display can usually only be recharged with great effort.

The newly launched “Otto Fischer Connect” offer makes it possible to easily order high-quality, internet-compatible SIM cards. With the online registration process, the SIM card is activated in the shortest possible time. The web-based customer cockpit ( ensures usage and cost control of all SIM cards. Completely without basic fees, obligations or minimum contract duration.

During a customer order, the “Otto Fischer Connect” SIM is registered by the end customer and immediately put into operation by the installer together with the corresponding device.

The applications around the “Internet of Things” and smart devices will continue to grow in the future. So start today and familiarize yourself with the technology.
